The white stuff's still falling. The Governor's declared a state of emergency. The President's been inaugrated. What else has happened today? Numerous units responded to an MVC involving a bus on Maywood Avenue at Morning Street about 7:25 a.m. Raleigh Engine 2, EMS 1, 11, 13, 8, 81, Truck 1, District 1, and Chief 100. Seven patients from the bus, 5 immobilzed. No serious injuries. Driver of second vehicle not hurt. About 8:07 a.m., a vehicle was found upside down in a creek beside Blue Ridge Road south of Crabtree Valley Avenue. Vehicle empty, driver found at nearby fast-food restaurant. Engine 14, Rescue 14 (shown below), Engine 16, and Ladder 17 were on scene, and helped block traffic. See some pictures by Legeros. Other weather stuff? RDU cancelled a mess of flights, and delayed three-dozen more, as of 11 a.m., as WRAL reports. The DOT is busy plowing and salting. The Celine Dion concert has not been cancelled. Remain calm on that last item.

My wife works at RBC, so I have the latest. All of you can breath a little easier…Celine is postponed until tomorrow night.

Phew. Calmer now.

Brother you would have made my day if you said that the concert was canceled instead of postponed.
Methinks the Ice witch Celine brought the winter weather with her. (Can ya tell I am not a fan?)
BTW: good shots as always Mike!

Yeah, but if the concert had been cancelled, then my other half would not be working. Therefore, she could not be earning the money to support me in the manner I am trying to get accustomed to…

The secret to snowy photography? First, gloves. Second, umbrella. Probably looked goofy— bright red umbrella held by guy in bright yellow parka— but, hey, it worked.

Probably no goofier than the dude in the Hawaiian shirts….

Yeah, he’s a nut.
